If you have read my previous post you'll know I was a lean mean sewing machine for at least three days this past week. OK- maybe not so lean but I think it's safe to say I got my 15 minutes a day in and then some if you average it out over the week.
I'm like that in real life too. I'm an all or nothing kind of girl. Whatever I'm focussed on tends to consume me so I'm either crazily sewing enough for three people or I'm doing nothing. Thank goodness this week was of the crazy sewing variety. I never know how long that feeling will last so I just roll with the punches.
I tend to be a morning person so when I get home from work I often don't feel like dragging my very tired patootie to the sewing room. In the morning I don't think Mr. P would be very happy to be woken at 5 am by the dulcet whirring of a sewing machine. It's a dilemma I haven't managed to solve satisfactorily yet. One solution would be to give up my day job but we tend to like eating and paying bills and not being evicted from our home so me not working isn't a very practical solution.
I have some goals for this week. One of them is to make this pile of strips disappear into magically sewn sets of threes and 6 more Hourglass blocks.
I'm going to make some binding for the Flurry quilt. Yes I'm aware I haven't made a back for it yet. That's on the list for this week too...
And lastly on a begging note, I have decided to make a selvage quilt in 2012. This has been a long term dream of mine for a couple of years and I've been saving selvages. I have a large squished down zip lock bag full of them but it's probably not enough for a whole quilt yet.
So if anyone has any they would be willing to gift to me please let me know. I'd really appreciate it and promise to mention you on my quilt label!
